"The Solution Focused approach was developed by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg at the Brief Family Therapy Center, Milwaukee. They built on the ideas of Milton Erickson and the systems-based approach of Gregory Bateson and his team at the Mental Research Institute to produce a model of change based on focusing on desired changes, finding what is already working in a person’s life, and doing more of it."
